About us



Terra Nova is a Destination Management Company, established in 2000 by Debbie de Villiers and Christine van der Merwe. Since then Terra Nova has grown to become one of the top DMC’s operating in Southern Africa, with a reputation for professionalism, an eye for detail and a passion for the destinations it manages.


We specialize in Meetings and Incentives, Individual Travel and Leisure Group. Our Incentive experience allows us to treat each project (whether it is a honeymoon itinerary or an incentive group), with the same attention to detail and immaculate management from start to finish.


Terra Nova sees each programme as a new challenge. With creativity and competence we design a unique itinerary for each client.


Our team consists of a dynamic and vibrant mix of consultants and project managers from both Southern Africa and European countries. We are able to communicate in English, Afrikaans, German and Spanish.  We are all very different – but we have one thing in common, a great love for Southern Africa!
